People that I know and love today are hurting. Some are hurting from a recent loss of a loved one and some are hurting for other reasons. The grief that they are feeling is still painful. It is in moments like this that our faith is questioned and we ask God why did this happen.
Know that you are not alone. You are surrounded by people who love and support you. People that will pray with you and dry your tears. My words may not give you comfort or peace today, but in time they will. The pain that you feel today is deep and you don’t know how you will make it. The pain that I have experienced in my life may not compare to yours. But I know what it is like to feel like you are in a dream, your body is numb, your soul aches and the tears won’t stop falling. I know what it is like to feel like life is over and that you will never smile again.
Take one day at a time. Grieve to release the pressure that you feel. Cherish the memories of the past and let those memories bring you comfort. Whatever you are facing today. If it worries you, makes you cry yourself to sleep or lays heavy on your heart. You must continue to live each day and enjoy life. Our lives can change in the blink of an eye. So remember to forgive others, love with all your heart and never take a day for granted. Don’t give up and trust God that He will see you through this difficult time.
